I have a serious question for the v6 pundits. If we DON'T go to IPv6,
we run a serious risk of actually running out of IP addresses. Are
we going to turn to bi-level NAT, or N-level NAT, or are we going to
do something _sensible_?
I'm not clue-enabled about ipv6 currently, but I'm trying to learn it.
IPv4 will be here for years, but I think the only people who have a truly
vested interest in forcibly keeping v4 around and not expanding to v6
are the ones who are making money by selectively delegating the addresses
[ARIN and their ilk]. Everything else is a minor technical detail.
What we could stand is someone like Cisco or Nortel, one o' them Big
Gunnish type guys, to come out with routers and switches which handle
Although I suspect that's more a matter of software than hardware...
